Hardcore Henry is a new upcoming film that takes the viewer on an experience of watching the movie from the eyes of the character in a first person POV (Point of View) action film.
Strap in. Hardcore Henry is an original film that was shot completely from the hero’s perspective. You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife (played by Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you should probably go get her back.
Who’s got her? His name’s Akan (played by Danila Kozlovsky); he’s a powerful warlord with an army of mercenaries, and a plan for world domination.
You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British man called Jimmy (played by Sharlto Copley). He may be on your side, but you aren’t sure. If you can survive the insanity, and solve the mystery, you might just discover your purpose and the truth behind your identity. Good luck, Henry. You’re likely going to need it…
